    Big yawn at ios6. Still gunning for the next iPhone though, a flirtation with Android and the Galaxy Note reveals Android really isn't for me. I've jailbroke since going back to ios, feels like the best of both worlds really, albeit on a screen that deffo feels too small these days. It'll be a wrench losing the customisation of jailbreak in the aftermath of the next iPhones launch though.

    I thought the same. However, it's not specific to Apple - the relentless feeding frenzy enabled by tech companies and enjoyed by their dependant websites is getting somewhat out of hand these days.

    Having said that, we do kind of bring it on ourselves. Sites like Engadget thrive because we've become obsessed with the next big thing. It's just that Apple is one of the best companies (see above photo for evidence) in exploiting that obsession. I mean, how difficult would it really have been to have more cabinets on display.

    That's actually the kind of thought that passed me by when I noticed a HDMI port on the new MacBook Pro ...

    ... : )

    Mr. Anthony (UK) is right; more and more people are trying something new after owning an iPhone in some shape or form for the last three or four years. I already know four or five folks who went from an iPhone 4 or 4S to one of the latest high-end HTC or Samsung Android phone.

    I am a bit boo-hoo that the Mac mini wasn't given a refresh though as I am looking to buy one!

    ... and I am the lowest earner of the lot!

    Nah, I think most had their contracts renewed or was coming to an end.

    If more and more people are trying alternatives why are iPhone sales increasingly so rapidly?

    A UI change might be nice but as none of the competition has done anything better yet there's not much point in cosmetic changes for the sake of it. Functionally the UI is still the best there is for now.

    Why are sales of other smartphones increasing as well? Because more and more people are buying Smartphones.

    Hell more people are buying windows phones as well.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Makes sense there may be iPhone 4 owners sniffing out alternatives, I was one of them briefly. I think most people jumped in, like me, when the 3G arrived, skipped the 3GS, bought the 4, skipped the 4S, and their two year contract will be up within the next couple of weeks. There's a 3 or 4 month window before the next one probably, doubt some will be able to resist the lure of attractive alternatives.

    Ive had my iPhone lust rekindled by jailbreaking it and unlimited data via Three. I'm never going near a long term contract again and I'll most likely be up at 0230 in the morning ordering the max capacity next one straight from Apple.

    What surprised me was that only 18 photographers were in shot. Everyone else in the background appeared to have better things to do.

    Love that it has someone taking a photo of it with their ipad.

    That photo is just asking to be photochopped.

    Sales are increasing because more people are buying them? I can't believe that is true.

    That guy just to the right of the trackpad, praying or jizzing? Or both?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    The definition of frustration: being a midget apple fan trying to view a new product on a super high podium.

    Yeah well that's the obvious reason for sales of iphones still increasing even with more people trying the alternatives :p

    Well I'm happy.
    Bought a 17" MBP about a month back, and hoped that I wouldn't regret it, post WWDC. And I don't. The retina disply would have been great, but no optical drive was a dealbreaker for me, plus having to spend a fortune (an extra fortune, on top of the fortune already laid out), for a 700GB+ drive! No thanks.

    And my poor ipad 1 won't run iOS6... Having looked at what iOS6 has, I don't seem to be missing out on much.

    Hi chaps not sure if correct thread but...

    I'm after a MP3/4 player. Will be used 99% for music, so doesn't have to be mega spec. I like the look of the 5th gen ipods (never had one, always Sony before)
    Is the Apple iPod Touch 16GB at 170 a good machine, easy to get music on, I would want to put my cd's onto it.
    I know it is not out until Oct, but have any of you had the previous versions. Ilike the look of it due to the slenderness of it.
    What is the sound like ?
    Quality of unit ?
    What else is out there for 150-175 ?
    Thank you for mucho help.

    I would do a google for an archos if you are just going to be listening to music.
